    Colchester Ridge Estate Winery (CREW)

    Winemaker’s Notes:
    This wine shows off the terroir of the area with an enticing nose of floral notes mingled with ‘wet stone’ minerality. On the palate experience a highly viscous wine full of stone fruit and mineral notes with a squeeze of lime on the finish. Drink now with salads containing fruit or nuts, spicy Asian or Indian food or strong blue cheeses.

    Colchester Ridge Estate Winery (CREW)

    Winemaker’s Notes:
    A citrus and apple nose heralds this fruit-driven unoaked Chardonnay that is refreshment in a glass. Honey Crisp apples and Bosc pear coupled on the palate with pleasing minerality, balance this crisp and bright white wine. Pair with cream based dishes, summer salads, seafood and more.

    This crowd-pleasing white has a bouquet of exotic lychee-nut and citrus, rose petal and honeysuckle with flavours of lychee, peach, mango and spice.

    5.00 overall score

    Colchester Ridge Estate Winery (CREW)

    Winemaker’s Notes:
    This delicious well balanced blend offers aromas of Chocolate truffles, cherry pipe tobacco and rose water. The full mouth feel and well managed tannins glide across the palate with flavours of plum preserves, cocoa, and vanilla spice. Barrel aged 4 years. This extraordinary wine should be decanted before serving.

    AGEABLILITY: 7-10 years.

    Pairs well with red meats and most savory dishes and will complement Asian inspired cuisine.

    Colchester Ridge Estate Winery (CREW)

    Winemaker’s Notes:
    This medium-bodied, versatile wine delivers black raspberry and bell pepper with a hint of mushroom on the nose. On the palate the fruit plays a great balancing act with white pepper and mineral notes. The good acidity/fruit balance lingers on the finish, guaranteeing a perfect pairing to many foods. Try it with duck, eggplant & pepper dishes, grilled salmon, pizza or tomato-based dishes.

    Colchester Ridge Estate Winery (CREW)

    Winemaker’s Notes:
    Set sail with this 2008 Merlot, barrel aged 18 months. Aromas of ripe plum and spicy vanilla flirt with floral notes. This medium bodied wine delivers juicy plum and dark berry on the palate with hints of milk chocolate and vanilla. Subtle tannins make this an easy red to drink now. Enjoy on its own or with your favourite grilled foods.
